I use Animation Master for animation and modeling. I'm not too good a it. The only reason I use that over 3DsMax is that we were taught Animation Master in animation class last year, not a more advanced program. Here we are a 5a school using a (at the time) $200 program, while 45 minutes away my friend at a smaller school is using Lightwave (I think $800-$1000 program)... Animation Master will crash on you just about as much as Windows Movie Maker... I've already tried demos of Maya, Lightwave, and have tried out Blender and Anim8or and couldn't figure out any of them. I think Animation Master has a totally different interface, non standard, so I can't figure out any of these others...
Here's one thing I did that looked any bit good:
It is the logo to put on my short films.
